This session will also feature Erika Viramontes, Scholarship Program Manager for the Hispanic College Fund.  She will be presenting on the different types of scholarships available, general tips for scholarships, and NASA scholarship opportunities.

The session will also allow for a question and answer period where you can ask questions, and obtain guidance for your individual situation.   The short video below shows how you can enter MICI's virtual conference lobby, and gain access to all the content on this subject, as well as many NASA University Challenge profiles and other NASA opportunities.

The mission of the Minority Innovation Challenges Institute (MICI) is to create a virtual training ground where minority undergraduate students learn how to compete in NASA technical challenges for both prestige and significant cash prizes. This NASA funded program, which is managed by Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University (FAMU), provides a year-round virtual conference platform where students from across the country can participate in free interactive educational sessions of their choosing. Many of the sessions will focus on competitions found within NASA's Centennial Challenges program, which provides cash prizes ranging from $50,000 to $2 million to individuals/teams that can achieve specific technical accomplishments. In addition to Centennial Challenges, students will also learn how to complete in other NASA sponsored competitions created specifically for Universities.
